  • Stable isotope analyses have become popular in sea turtle literature over the past decade, with an increasing year-to-year trend in published studies reporting insights into food web structure, diet, trophic interactions, ontogenetic shifts, geographic distributions, and more. Understanding the geographic distribution of migrating taxa within their sub-populations could enhance conservation and management, especially for threatened populations. For sea turtles, stable isotope analyses can… CONTINUE READING
